This is the weekly news, rumors and refurbishments update for Walt Disney World for the week of December 7, 2014.
Here are the three biggest updates from around the resort for the past seven days…
1. More details are released about the bungalows at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
Last week we mentioned the possibility that the re-imagined lobby at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort may be opening later this month.
The walls on the main floor of the Great Ceremonial House have now been removed and replaced with curtains. The lights fixtures have also been installed and decorative trim is being added. With the final details being put in place, the grand reveal can’t be far away.
Disney has released concept art for the Bungalows over Seven Seas Lagoon and the Deluxe Studio Disney Vacation Club rooms.
There will be 20 Bungalows in total over the Seven Seas Lagoon. The Bungalows can sleep up to eight guests and will feature a private plunge pool.
The Deluxe Studios will sleep up to five guests and will have the ability to connect to the neighboring Deluxe Studio. Each Studio will have split bathrooms, one with a shower and a sink and one with a sink and tub/shower. I presume that one will include a toilet, but Disney didn’t specify. This is similar to the setup found in the Staterooms onboard Disney Cruise Line ships. The Deluxe Studios will also have kitchenettes and enhanced storage space.
All Disney Vacation Club rooms including the bungalows will be available to rent by guests that are not Disney Vacation Club members. The new rooms will be available sometime in 2015.
